Dear Maureen and Jeanne, I just heard about your Mom going home to God. I did not know about your Dad. We lost touch after their move to Hudson. I have often thought of your dear Mother and family over the years. I have such fond memories of you all! Knowing your parents are with God will not lessen the pain of loss and separation. You are in our prayers. Please feel free to email me. It would be wonderful to be in touch. Sending hugs, prayers, and condolences, ‘Miss Cerunda’, Helen and Charles Brewer

Dear Maureen and Jeanne and family: I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. Tom and I had many fond memories of meetings in Florida during the winter. And you know that Tom and your Dad were childhood friends. I know they are going over old times and Notre Dame games up above. Please know that you all are in my prayers and thoughts at this time.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your mother. Mrs. McFadden was my advisory teacher at Paul VI from 1990-1995. She was always so dedicated to her students and helped me personally in so many way. Now, as a teacher myself, I think back to all of the little things she did for her students every day and am in awe. She truly had a calling and gift. May you find peace in these memories. Rest In Peace, Mrs. McFadden.
